I've seen today in the Yorkshire Post a suggestion that the fans should contribute to the future of Leeds United.
What a great idea. But how?
It's simple really. We all just chip in. Where's the problem?
I suppose the problem is how? Surely it’s impossible... But is it really?
We have people that want to sell large bits of the club......and we'd like to own it.
So how could this come about? Easy really.
To buy ten percent then the owners would want £3,000,000.
That's a lot of money. What can we do?
£3,000,000 divided by 10,000 people paying £300 makes the money up and you'd think would secure 10% of the company.
Let's go a step further. We have owners that need cash. It's possible that 10,000 people could pay £100 each now and another £100 in December. Another in May would mean 3 million pounds to GFH and the supporters own 10%.
Why not offer to do the same again the year after??? Now we own 20% and have a say. Don't try to buy supported funded players.
We set this up as a company and everybody who invests owns their share.
This all sounds mad, but why?
We have a board looking for investment and we want to support our club.
Just think, you pay £100 now plus another £100 December and another in May.
All we need to do is register 'Marching on together LTD' and we could do this.
But at this point we need a leader. This is where Gary Cooper needs to stand up. I will stand beside him.
Separate to this I am on a business trip and passing through Kuala Lumpur. The bloke next to me in the bar is a Leeds fan living here. He says 'when do you want my £300?'
We could do this. Who wants to own a share of their club.
I'll pay to register 'marching on together.co.uk' if you all want to do it.
Leeds United without the debt from the East Stand loan is sustainable. Let’s do it. Let’s own 10 % of Leeds United and be even prouder. Let’s tell them we'll have 10% next year too.
